This may not be for J in E-town, too much dairy, but it really is tasty.
1/2 lb bacon, small onion chopped, 1/2 c shredded carrots, 1 stalk celery diced, 4 TBS butter divided, 2 cans chicken broth, 4 potatoes diced, 1/4 c flour 1/2 oz American Cheese cubed,
1-1/2 c milk, salt & pepper
Saute the bacon, drain when cooked, not crisp and set aside. Soften onion, carrots, celery in 1TBS butter. Add 2 cans chicken broth & potatoes, bring to boil and cook until potatoes are soft. Meanwhile cook butter and flour in another pan. Add to soup when potatoes are soft. Bring to boil and cook 2 minutes. Lower heat and add cheese and milk, stir until cheese melts. Serve and enjoy.
Have a great SAT, on my way out to cut bushes.
